…with the air, with the land, and with the water: Landscape Interventions by Dominic Miller
October 15th-November 13th, 2010
New works by Dominic Miller explore rhythm and territory in the Navajo landscape after three decades of uranium mining in the Modified Arts exhibition, …with the air, with the land, and with the water: Landscape Interventions by Dominic Miller. In this immersive multi-media exhibition, sculpture, installation, drawings, and photography tell the stories of the land and the people impacted by it’s mining.
Dominic Miller grew up in and around Phoenix, Arizona. He worked there as a land surveyor with Daniel Neztsosie and was first introduced to the impact of uranium mining. After receiving a degree in Printmaking from Arizona State University, and a period living in Brooklyn, he returned to Phoenix to complete a social sculpture temporarily installed at the Phoenix Art Museum. A culminating selection of artwork from Dominic’s three year project investigating the aftermath of uranium mining on the Navajo Nation will be on display at Modified Arts from October 15th-November 13th, with a public reception on October 15th (Third Friday) from 6-9pm.
Performance in the gallery with Postcommodity on First Friday, November 5th at 9:30pm
